Officials with the US Department of Health and Human Services say health centers in Hawaiʻi served more than 144,000 patients last year, 24% of whom were uninsured.

“This investment will give Hawaii neighborhoods and towns one more resource to help people understand their insurance options and enroll in affordable coverage,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a press release today.

Health officials in Hawaiʻi say individuals will be able to take advantage of the benefits of new coverage options that begin in Janaury 2014.

HRSA Administrator Mary Wakefield, Ph.D, R.N. said, “Having trained, face-to-face assistance in enrollment from trusted resources at local health centers means that more Hawaiians will get the help they need.”
